Hey I made this topic just to address a few things you might consider adding in the future-
1.Skins-Something medievil and cool has a banner that says armorgames Community or Armor chat.
2.Post Count, Members active, and total members trackers, its always good to know who online and its good to keep track of how large our community actaully is.
3.Ranks- it would be cool to have some forum ranks ex-Peasant-1-10 posts, Knight-10-40, Warrior-,40-80,etc. As long as this doesn't get too competitive.
4.Editing Posts, You know I really hate when you don't have a lot of time to say what you mean, or just don't pay enough attention, editing is a essential tool.
5.News Section-For anyone who goes straight the forums it would a good Idea to have the last new posted there where we can comment or whatnot.
6.Improved Moderating-I've noticed as observer that "The Tavern" has become somewhat of a spamming ground.
7. Avatars/sigs people should be able to have their avatars, maybe the images used could be used for ranks.
Thats all I got but please keep these things in mind. This is a great place but I can't help thinking its a little to plain for my taste, as for the website that looks great, keep it up!

1.Skins-Something medievil and cool has a banner that says armorgames Community or Armor chat.

Suggested and rejected by a lot.

2.Post Count, Members active, and total members trackers, its always good to know who online and its good to keep track of how large our community actaully is.

There is a post count and yes the people in forums would be a good idea.

3.Ranks- it would be cool to have some forum ranks ex-Peasant-1-10 posts, Knight-10-40, Warrior-,40-80,etc. As long as this doesn't get too competitive.

There are already ranks that the forum posts help to acheive and making more ranks just for forums will lead in more spam.

4.Editing Posts, You know I really hate when you don't have a lot of time to say what you mean, or just don't pay enough attention, editing is a essential tool.

Suggested and is being worked on.

5.News Section-For anyone who goes straight the forums it would a good Idea to have the last new posted there where we can comment or whatnot.

The site has a news section where you can leave comments.

6.Improved Moderating-I've noticed as observer that "The Tavern" has become somewhat of a spamming ground.

Moderators are doing what they can and this cannot be "fixed"

7. Avatars/sigs people should be able to have their avatars, maybe the images used could be used for ranks.

Being worked on.

I believe most of the spamming is going on in the comments on people's pages. Just check out the top ranked users. This week 3 or 4 came out of no where, but there comments are in the 800-900 range. Carlie said that comments on people's pages will soon no longer have point value.

The tavern does not have a lot of spam. As Nykoi1 said, the topics like 3 word story are valid because people follow the rules and find humor to it. Forum games are acceptable as long as they are in the right category. My point is the spam isn't coming from the forums.

yeah, the game spamming is horrible, but three story allows people to just that make 3 word posts, sure people may find humor in it but its not contrustive at all. what do you think of my other suggestions?

Nykoi1 covered your suggestions well. I am an extremely new moderator and still learning the ropes. I can suggest flagging posts that you believe to be spam. It does get noticed, I promise. Carlie is doing this on top of school, but I have a lot more time than she does. So, if there is a specific issue with it you can show it to me.

Some of your suggestions have been mentioned before, as Nykoi1 said and they are being reviewed. But keep them up! New ideas are always welcome.

The ranks that you speak of are soon to come, I am sure. I do think that is a good idea so that the other users know who to contact if there is a problem.
